It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for another edition of the Nintendo Download. Eight new games will call the Nintendo eShop home this week. Some of this week’s new releases include…
- The first game in Nintendo’s side-scrolling New Super Mario Bros. series makes the leap from the DS to the Wii U.
- Capcom continues their Mega May promotion with the launch of Mega Man Battle Network 3: Blue/White, which was originally released for the Game Boy Advance, on the Wii U eShop.
- The first game based on the popular Attack on Titan anime, Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, has been added to the 3DS eShop.
- Stretchmo is the latest game in Nintendo’s Pushmo series of puzzlers. Available now on the 3DS, players have the option to play a free-to-play version limited to the first seven levels or they can purchase additional level packs individually or as a bundle.
More information on all these titles (and four others) can be found after the break.
Wii U eShop
New Super Mario Bros. – This Nintendo DS game introduced the now-classic New Super Mario Bros. series! Princess Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser Jr. … again! Run, jump and stomp your way across eight worlds as you smash through your foes and save the day. And then take a break from the adventure to play mini-games in four fun-filled categories.
Mega Man Battle Network 3: White / Mega Man Battle Network 3: Blue – Lan and Mega Man are ready to prove they’re the strongest in the next tournament! But there seems to be a more sinister plan behind the event. Game content is the same for Mega Man Battle Network 3: White and Mega Man Battle Network 3: Blue, but NetNavi chips and other items may differ.
Nihilumbra – Nihilumbra is a puzzle platformer that tells the story of Born, a being from the Void that wants to find the meaning of its own existence. Each color you find in the game will allow you to paint the landscape with your hands, altering its properties.
Ultratron – Experience the fun game play of this old-school arcade favorite, updated for the 21st century, with unique upgrades, player-responsive difficulty and a subtle tactics system.
Funk of Titans – You will control Perseus, the son of Zeus and protector of the legendary holy music: the Funk. Run across the ancient greek mythology, collect funk vinyls, beat enemies, wear epic costumes, ride the legendary Pegasus and smash the rap, the pop and the rock of the evil Musical Titans in fierce dance battles. Only one music can survive and the Funk is the music of the gods.
Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains – Join Eren, Mikasa and the Scout Regiment as they defend the Walls in Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. If you can’t do it alone, recruit your friends and go Titan hunting through the online co-op mode. As the footsteps of the Titans grow closer, will you hide in fear or become humanity’s last hope?
Stretchmo – In addition to pushing and pulling colorful blocks, the active verb in Stretchmo is right there in the game’s name: stretching. Players make their way through multiple puzzling levels by moving around blocks to reach the goal – even stretching certain blocks to extend them from every side. Players can even stretch the limits of their own imaginations and create levels in Stretchmo Studio, save them and share via a QR Code with friends and family members who also own the game! Stretchmo Studio is unlocked by purchasing any attraction pass. Additionally, different features are unlocked as players complete more levels throughout the attractions.
